Make a Pacifier Holder

Make a Pacifier Holder clip out of textile or with yarn. It is quite easy to do your own holders. Either you just use ribbons, that is an easy way to get a finished product. Or you sew two pieces of fabric together to shape a more steady textile holder. If you ccrochet, make sure to use cotton fabric.

Crochet Cowl

handcraftbygrip-cowlCrochet Cowl in cotton yarn, wear it to work or parties as a nice shawl. I made one to try it out in 2012 and just love it! Follow this easy pattern to get started!

This post is mentioned on Swedish site Handunik. For Swedish tips, check out my blog Pyssel&!

Crochet a cowl

  • Make a series of chain stitches, try to judge how big you want the cowl to be.
  • Join the ends together with a slip stitch to form a circle.
  • Start crocheting around the circle, I normally make the first round with 1 single stitch in every chain stitch. Join together with slip stitch.
  • Crochet the style you want the cowl, use double stitches to make a loose pattern.

Crochet baby blanket

Crochet a baby blanket in small and cute granny squares. It can be used in a baby trolley as well as in bed. I’ve used organically colored cotton yarn, colors yellow, beige, pink, blue and brown from M&K (in Sweden).

Worked out the pattern by placing out all the squares meanwhile working. I rarely follow any pattern som this as well as my other items is one of a kind.


Stich the squares together using the hook and finished the sides with three rowes of sc’s.


To make it extra soft and warm keeping I sew on a piece of cotton fabric on the uglier side. The blanket is washable in machine.

Crochet rug of t-shirts

Crochet rug of t-shirts, just cut them in pieces and get started!

Re-use t-shirts that you just don’t want to wear no more but yet not worn out. All you need are a scissor and a crochet hook.


Crochet rug of t-shirts

  • Start by cutting the fabric, according to the picture below. Start with cutting of the arms, neck and all pieces that are not a square. For every t-shirt you should have two pieces of fabric. Cut according to the picture, roll together to a skein.Avoid cutting short peices to joint together, the longer pieces the better.

  • Crochet with a big hook, and make a decision weather you wanna crochet a squared rug or a round one. Crochet the same way as for potholders. Do not tighten the fabric too much since t-shirt fabric has stretch.


Rug made of bedlinnen

I aslo re-use bedlinnen of cotton to make rugs, they stay in good shape for a long time and are washable in the machine.

Crochet blanket and cushion

After some hours if work I’ve finished my latest crochet project, a cushion and a blanket made by granny squares.

Both items are made by cotton yarn, for the blanket I crocheted 9 rows of each granny square, all joined together by sewing, using the yarn as thread.
The backside of the cushion is made of solid white furniture fabric, so this cushion can also be used as a seat on the floor.
